This is a really good idea for a thread, Flo, and I greatly enjoyed looking at your selections. You must have spent some time getting all the clips together and making your post. Nice job! I haven't seen all the movies you have listed but I know that The Departed will be on my list too, and Lost In Translation, boh movies that I love. Was cool to see Leslie Nielson on your list, he is a Canadian icon, you know, sadly he has gone from us but he did leave a great legacy of laughter. I would have put I Am Legend on my list too, save for

Spoiler
, made me too sad to ever want to see it again.

And I am also looking forward to The Artist too, the concept is exciting to me.

I need to make myself a list of movies and start searching for clips now!

Wow, this is wonderful Flo! what a great post, and one that is going to get us all thinking!!

You have created a quality list of films here...triggering off what mien would be..No Country For Old Men is a standout movie, but it is not my fave Coen bothers film..Inception has to be one of the most intelligently crafted movies I have seen in recent years and yet it is not a favourite somehow..Lost In Translation is my favourite Sofia Coppola movie too...interesting to think what makes a fave movie, ther are so so many absolutely classic and brilliant movies ..but for me there has to be a special memory or connection that somehow embeds it as a favourite of mine. Right....I am going to write a list in no particular order or genre because i know if i go away and over think this i will never get a list together!!

 

Some of these will probably seem odd! And there are lots of other amazing films! But all these films have personal meaning or significance to me, whether because I saw them when i was really young and they blew me away, or a memorable trip to the cinema, or they had an impact on me, or they somehow left an indelible impression on me!

these are random, oh so random..... and across all time!

2001: A Space Odyssey

The Wizard of Oz

Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Blade Runner

The Fly

12 monkeys  

Planet of The Apes (the original )

A.I Artificial Intelligence

Terminator 2

The Shining

One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest

Midnight Express

The Empire Strikes Back

Jaws

The Truman Show

Logan's Run

Enter the Dragon

Akira

Batman Mask of The Phantasm

Fantasia

Spirited Away

Mullholland Drive

The Elephant Man

Shutter island

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

Blue Valentine

Into the Wild

The Prestige

The Piano

The Untouchables

Avatar

Pulp Fiction

Thelma and Louise

Being John Malkovich

The Red Shoes

Pan's labyrinth

 Kill Bill

King Kong (original)

The Shining

To kill A Mockingbird

The Exorcist

Carrie

Suspiria

Masque of the Red Death

Phantom Of The Opera (original)

The Bride of Frankenstein

American Werewolf In London

thanks for sharing your list lula!

I think i have seen almost everyone of them and i dont know how i could the truman show forget, what an outstanding movie.

I know what you mean all these movie i listed have a personal or other meaning to me, it would take years to describe those memories for every movie.

I had lots of fun looking for these clips, a great trip down memory lane, though I find often the trailers do not give a real impression of the movie's depth or impact.I have more too, I will post again!

One of my all-time favourites with one of my all-time favourite actors. A movie everyone should experience.

As a fan of old movies, I have to include some of them. This one is possibly one of the funniest movies ever to me, sheer gold!

A very scary ghost story, strong performances.

Another haunting ghost story.

So beautful, I love this movie.

I have only seen this once, but it left an indelible impression on me, the cinematography and grace of it.

This is when I first fell in love with a man chomping on a cigar, so I have to include it! Plus, the music! The poncho and the hat!

Who can watch this and not be moved, inspiring.

I don't usually go for romantic comedies, but oddly I notice I have several on my list of favourites! This is the first one I really loved, I think, it is charming. ( not sure if this is a proper trailer though.)

I already wrote about this one elsewhere, it really is something special. My favourite this year, so far.

Freakiest Hitchcock movie! I saw this in the theatre years ago and have never looked at birds the same way since.

I can never forget this movie, it is about pure love. And it is beautiful.

Thank you Flo, and yes Forest Gump is such an interesting and brilliant movie and story, so many difrent scenes that all come down on one thing, that your life won't be easy but that you have to keep trying, do your best, and never give up. Well that is what I think it comes down on :)

There are some beautiful films on your list Lady Trueheart,very remiss of me not to include Hitchcock, The Birds isclassic epic! but from around the same era i think my faves are Psycho and Vertigo.

Eva, how ever could i forget Grease!! I remember seeing this at the cinema when i was probably too young to get all of it, and it remains a guilty pleasure to this day, just a brilliant all time stand out musical!!!
